Employee #1 and the coworker were standing behind the pile of dirt and watching the traffic on MD Route #228 as the grader made its second pass of the dirt pile. The back-up alarm was not working at the time but both employees heard the grader backing up. It continued backing up until it ran over Employee #1's left leg. The grader was stopped and the foreman called for medical help. Employee #1 sustained injuries to his left leg and a fractured pelvis.
